I think the idea of multiprocessor is that we can have many more programs(different applications) running at the same time than on any single-processor systems.In that case we might be able to run multiple Java applications more efficiently than on any other single-processor multi-threaded machine. But as far as the how a single program running on a single alloted processor is concerned we might not see much a difference.
Plz correct me if I am wrong. Asha

Hi, I thought the CPU could schedule the threads on both processors, for example if you have two threads like main and another...one on each, if its well programmed you could be sure what the output ll be? or not? I amn't an processor ingenieur so... I know that some programms can fully use multi-processor, but the most use only one and the other proc is waiting or doing something else. arno [ April 10, 2006: Message edited by: Arno Reper ]
